COVID SAFETY

The health and well-being of our guests is BJE’s highest priority; therefore BJE’s Gala will be compliant with CDC, local, state and national guidelines. This includes the following plans at the moment:

  • Weather permitting, all food service will occur outdoors
  • All attendees must show proof of full vaccination prior to the event. Please note that images of vaccination cards will not be stored by BJE once we have recorded a guest’s vaccination status
  • The program will be held in the Katz Pavilion with the back wall open.  Seating will be auditorium style and socially distanced. Masks will be available and required during the program which will last approximately 1 hour
  • This information will be updated as new guidelines become available
  • We look forward to gathering as a community, in a COVID-safe manner, to honor Mark Berns and Miriam Prum Hess and celebrate BJE’s partnership with Jewish schools and amongst lay and professional leaders.
